Read full description of the books:Drover’s emitting messages in code. No, seriously. He is. He said “Zebras wear pajamas but you can’t spot a leopard with a spyglass.” Any other dog might have been cowed by the depth and intricacy of that sort of a message being transmitted from a sleeping mutt, but we’re not talking about an average dog. We’re talking about the cleverest Head of Ranch Security ever. That’s right – Hank’s on the job.
And he’s just about to crack the code when Sally May slams the screen door. She not only wakes up Drover and thus terminates the investeegashun, but she’s carrying….. SCRAPS!
It would be pretty embarrassing to tell you all that happened next. I mean, between Pete and Drover and Sally May, well, it doesn’t matter how brilliant and hard-working a dog is, he’s never appreciated on his own territory. And to top it all off, Sally May’s gone and broke her leg, and she’s decided to blame HANK for it. I mean, how silly is that? Granted, Hank was sorta sprawled out across her path, but…. Can’t a gal look where she’s going?
The reason she’s really mad, though, is ‘cause her mother-in-law and two little girl cousins are coming over for a visit, and everything’s supposed to be in perfect order. Needless to say, being in perfect order wasn’t part of what the morning held for, well, anybody, really. So it isn’t just Hank’s fault. Uh-uh.
But the two little girls – ah! Simply gems! The cutest little, sweetest ever, darlingest pies…. Enough to make a fella fall in love, they are.
Ahem. But there’s a job to be done. A one-eyed killer stud horse is on the loose. There’s no telling where or when he might show up. Can Hank protect his the two little girls and Little Alfred from the mad horse? Or will they be torn to shreds by this ferosheratin’ beast?

Read information about the authorJohn R. Erickson, a former cowboy and ranch manager, is gifted with a storyteller's knack for spinning a yarn. Through the eyes of Hank the Cowdog, a smelly, smart-aleck Head of Ranch Security, Erickson gives readers a glimpse of daily life on a ranch in the West Texas Panhandle. This series of books and tapes is in school libraries across the country, has sold more than 7.6 million copies, is a Book-of-the-Month Club selection, and is the winner of the 1993 Audie for Outstanding Children's Series from the Audio Publisher's Association. Publishers Weekly calls Hank a "grassroots publishing phenomena," and USA Today says this is "the best family entertainment in years."
Hank the Cowdog made his debut in the pages of The Cattleman, a magazine for adults, and when Erickson started getting "Dear Hank" letters, he knew he was onto something. So in 1983, he self-published 2,000 copies of The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog, and they sold out in 6 weeks.
When teachers began inviting Erickson to their schools, Hank found his most eager fans. Teachers, librarians, and students alike love Hank. According to some Texas Library Association surveys, the Hank the Cowdog books are the most popular selections in many libraries' children's sections. The lively characters make excellent material for reading and writing lessons, and turn even the most reluctant readers into avid Hank-fans.
Erickson was born in Midland, Texas, but by the age of 3, he had moved with his family to Perryton, Texas, where he and his wife live today on their working cattle ranch. They have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. His advice to young writers is, "Write about something you know. Try to leave your readers better off than they were before."
